We all know that luxury watch brands always try to outdo one another with their products. After browsing through their collection, you can probably see a common pattern. The usage of precious metals, gemstones, leather, and other expensive materials is expected. Therefore, some watchmakers rely on innovation instead to attract consumers. The TAG Heuer Carrera HEUER 02T Tourbillon Nanograph is one such timepiece teases something extraordinary.
At first glance, you might think that there’s nothing out of the ordinary with this new model. However, the company claims that a revolutionary breakthrough figuratively beats within the heart of the wristwatch. Unless you are aware of specific changes that sit inside, it’s easy to presume that the watch is just your conventional high-end variant.
However, the brand reveals that other than the top-tier craftsmanship, its scientists created something entirely different. Instead of using elastic alloys, the timepiece’s complications are operating via a carbon composite hairspring. According to sources, the process assembles the mechanical part atom by atom from elemental carbon. The next-generation tech of the component gives it unique properties such as adaptability to temperature fluctuations and excellent shock resistance. Additionally, it is anti-magnetic, so users can look forward to impressive durability.
Other than its one-of-a-kind carbon composite hairspring, the luxury wristwatch is a stunning item. To showcase the futuristic technology inside each TAG Heuer Carrera HEUER 02T Tourbillon Nanograph, a special design adorns its body. You can spot a hexagonal pattern on its dial as well as on the oscillating weight. The latter is viewable through the watch’s sapphire case back. Finally, the lime accents add some cool contrast to its dark finish.
